Dolphins | Damien Williams to remain involved

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:57:26 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams will continue to split carries with RB Kenyan Drake, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has managed just 33 yards on 16 carries the last two games while Drake has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on the same number of carries. Although Williams will remain involved, Drake is the only Miami back worth starting right now.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake stuck in committee

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:49:03 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is worthy of more carries, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, but Christensen said the formula with Drake and RB Damien Williams will not change.

Fantasy Tip: Although Drake has been the better runner by a wide margin, both he and Williams have received 16 carries each over the last two games. Splitting carries limits Drake's ceiling, but he has done more than enough with his touches to be considered a flex play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.

Dolphins | Miami's backfield will remain a committee

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 10:12:08 -0800

Miami Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams will continue to split touches, according to offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen.

Fantasy Tip: Drake has earned the lead role in Miami's backfield, but the Dolphins aren't giving it to him yet. Not only is Drake a bigger playmaker, Williams has only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in his career. The former is a solid RB2 play in a great matchup this week. The latter is more of a PPR flex.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake nearly doubles season yard total

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:59:03 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake logged 82 rushing yards and a touchdown on seven carries in the team's Week 10 defeat Monday, Nov. 13, opposite the Carolina Panthers. He also added a pair of receptions for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Notably, Drake nearly doubled his rushing yardage total entering the ballgame, and he's looked real good since the team dealt away Jay Ajayi prior to the trade deadline. In the last two weeks, Drake has now totaled 151 yards on only 16 rushing attempts (9.4 yards per carry!), so you have to believe he's in line for more work in the weeks ahead. As a result, he's a fine FLEX option right now.

Dolphins | Adam Gase sees running game making progress

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 10:02:49 -0800

Miami Dolphins RBs Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake combined to average 5.18 yards per carry in a Week 9 loss to the Oakland Raiders, enough to make head coach Adam Gase optimistic about the the running game in general. "I like where our run game is heading. We were able to do a couple things where we popped a big one. ... I think it makes a difference," Gase said.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine one year after Jay Ajayi exploded for 200-plus rushing yards three times that Gase could feel good about his team running for 86, but such is the state of the Dolphins' running game at the moment. Drake busted loose for a 42-yard scamper to make his final numbers look nice (nine carries for 69 yards) while Williams did most of his damage the passing game. It appears this will remain a committee backfield for the foreseeable future.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake with solid showing

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 05:27:21 -0800

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake had nine carries for 69 yards and six catches for 35 yards in Week 9 Sunday, Nov. 5, against the Oakland Raiders. He did lose a fumble, though.

Fantasy Tip: In contrast, Damien Williams had seven carries for 14 yards and a 6-47-1 receiving line. So Drake isn't ahead of the committee by much, if at all. We'll see how that fumble affects his workload. He's a solid RB3 for now.

Fantasy Tip: Drake was a popular waiver claim this week, and he's a flex option in a sneaky solid matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

Dolphins | HC wants Kenyan Drake to do more

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 15:54:11 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake has had the benefit of more reps in practice with RB Jay Ajayi not working every day during the week. Head coach Adam Gase said Friday, Oct. 6, he'd like Drake to be the backup to Ajayi.

Fantasy Tip: Drake could be on the verge of passing Damien Williams on the depth chart, but neither of the two backups are worthy of much fantasy consideration as long as Ajayi is up on game day.
